version of the underwear bomb that nearly blew up a flight over detroit on christmas in 2009. cia intercepted it in yemen before the would be bomber even purchased a ticket. u.s. secretary of state, hillary clinton reacted overnight during a visit to india. it indicates terrorists keep trying they keep trying to devise more and more perverse and terrible ways to kill innocent people. >> reporter: the white house said to acknowledge the president learned about the plot last month. a time when the administration was trying to reas sure the public. >> at this time we have no credible information, terrorist organizations including al qaeda are plotting attacks in the u.s. to coincide with the anniversary of osama bin laden's death. >> reporter: for department of homeland security the fear is bombs like this that cannot contain metal parts are getting tougher to detect. >> it is worrisome, al qaeda,
9:06 am
is able to build bombs still, after a year or more of increasing drone strikes. >> reporter: now we don't know what became of the would be bomber but the bomb itself is now in the possession of the fbi in virginia they are going through it to determine what the state of the art is now for al qaeda bomb makers. >> doug luzader live on the hill thank you. the obama administration will not make a deal with al qaeda to secure the freedom of a rockville man. white house press secretary carney said president obama is aware of the video released over the weekend that shows warren winestein begging for his life. carney says mr. obama is greatly concerned about mr. winestein's safety but it is u.s. policy not to negotiate with terrorists. >> our hearts go out with him and his family we condemn his kidnapping in strongest terms and call for immediate release the u.s. government will
9:07 am
continue making every effort to see him released safely to his family but cannot and will not negotiate with al qaeda. >> the 70-year-old was kidnapped 9 months ago in pakistan al qaeda says they will free him if the u.s. stops attacks in pakistan, afghanistan, yemen and somalia and releases all al qaeda and taliban prisoners around the world. priest of an episcopal church in maryland who died after being shot along with another church worker will be laid to rest today funeral services for reverend mary cohen will take place in baltimore. she and brenda brewington were shot inside an office in ellicott city last week. brewington died at the scene cohen a few days later police believe a homeless man who frequented the church for food donations shot the women and killed himself. fairfax county police made

9:09 am
virginia. a partisan show down is expected to come to a head with a vote concerning student loan interest rates. they are at odds how to keep those interest rates low melanie alnwick is here with more. a senate vote is scheduled for noon before the hearing may be blocked and the bill renegotiated. this has become an issue like so many fiscal fights democrats and republicans agree on the end goal but can't see eye to eye how to get there. we are talking about federally subsidized student loans 7 million students depend on to pay for college. interest rate is set to double july 1st, democrats who like the pay for the rate freeze, increasing some payroll taxes on high earning stock holders, republicans prefer to take the money from a new preventative health care fund, set up in the health care plan. you can see classic differences in philosophy when everything comes with a cost.
9:10 am
>> it costs $6 billion, so one year of extending these lower interest rates, is going to be scored as costing the federal government $6 billion or so, which is you know in this sort of era we are in, reducing the federal deficit you can't do anything without finding savings some place else. >> just a couple things about this whole loan rate debate that has not been clear before first the rate increase would only effect new borrowers not retroactive to people with current loans and second the cost to borrowers we have heard so much about. u.s. department of education estimates it would be $1,000 over the life of the loan. now because these loans are paid out over a decade or more, it really amounts to about $100 or less a year, and if you break it down further, maybe even just less than $10 a month still as you can imagine allison and tony beneather party wants to be tagged as the one who raised the cost of
9:11 am
student loans. all right thank you very much melanie. >> thanks melanie. >> still ahead, on a tuesday, he is the voice of dc but unfortunately we haven't heard much from him lately. >> chuck brown's health, forced him to cancel several recent shows this morning we have an update exactly why the god father of go go has been off the stage for several weeks now. up next looking for something different to do on your next vacation, be a vol untourist, one local man looking to change the world one trip at a time. 9:11 a.m. 
9:12 am
9:13 am
9:14 am
hurricane katrina turned hundreds of thousands of lives upside down but also helped change the life of a local man for the better. ken bud a journalist was having what you might call a mid-life crisis when he decided to sign up for disaster relief through a movement called vol untourism
9:15 am
since that first trip he has been around the world, volunteering his time in many capacities he is out with a new book, published today called the volunteerist good to meet you. >> thanks. let me start with voluntourism that is a phrase you coined. no, some call it volunteer vacations, i don't think they have settled on a name yet. >> it does capture what you have been doing. before we get to the nuts and bolts, let's talk about how you started it was a mid-life crisis of sorts really, what prompted this was the passing of your father right? >> right and i was kind of going through a period as we some times do where i was questioning who am i what is my purpose and then my father died and he died suddenly, and after he passed away people were writing us saying your father changed my life and i thought what are people going to say when i am gone this opportunity arose, volunteer in new orleans out of the blue and i took it.
9:16 am
>> out of the blue and from my sense of things from reading the book that first trip you took, you kind of just jumped in, you know, it seemed to me there wasn't a lot of thought not a lot of research, done on this tell me about that. >> well, they wanted unskilled volunteers that was perfect for me i had no skills. what i found is you go thinking you are going to do a certain thing, paint houses whatever but just being there is a big part of it i wonder when you see the scale of katrina, how can one person make a difference i told myself one day i was scraping a shed and i said if i don't scrape this shed they can't paint the house you can't paint the house the person can't move back in and then you realize this small act has meaning. >> let's talk about the different places you have been we showed the picture of new orleans, there, you have been literally all over the world, ecuador, costa rica, china, kenya. china you write about china tell us where this picture is. >> take none the cloud forests
9:17 am
in ecuador, an deese mountains, 2 hour walk to get there. >> how long were you there. >> two weeks. >> what did you do >> assisted climate change researchers doing work there, data collectionand whatever they needed. >> the concept of the vol untourism is that you even cali are doing this dour -- eventually you are doing this during your vacation time. >> it is a strange concept that you are using your free time to work but some times paying for the privilege. >> not being paid and you are paying for the trip. this is this china you write about china and it is interesting because you don't speak chinese. >> right. >> you were asked on one occasion why you were there what was your answer. >> i gave her the -- my straight answer this was true it is a way to see a place on a level you never would otherwise because you are working with local people eating local food, and when i was in china, i was there with a friend every day
9:18 am
we would walk to the school and never saw any other westerners which was baffling in some ways this was a huge city, the terracotta warriors are there one day we saw a tour bus go by that is where they all were. it gets you off the tour bus on to the streets. >> meeting people and interact being the locals. >> do you now that you have been doing this and travelling to so many place, do you feel betterrant yourself and your contribution to the world? >> i came to see -- feel much smaller which was not necessarily a bad thing and came to appreciate my life and all i have and i feel the commitment to places where i went and where helping them out money from the book will go to places where i worked. >> is this something other people should investigate doing. >> i am not sure it is a trip, for everybody some of us do want to go and relax and we would rather splash in a pool than sweat in a school but for many people who have done the tour bus thing and want to try
9:19 am
something different or give back. we don't all have two years to give to peace corps. >> one thing you talked about to do this and understand and appreciate what it is you are doing whenever you go to whatever country and help out, you have to kind of manage your expectations. >> right especially if you are only there two weeks anything you can do you are not going to change the world, not going to save the wormed anything you do will be small but -- world anything you do will be small but in china, they had a tough job, in a special needs school. i heard after we left, the teachers said we seem to laugh more when volunteers are here. for them it helps them out. >> you have two book signings coming up may 19th, politicprose at 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon, connecticut avenue and then may 31st, evening book signing at one more page books in arlington virginia where folks can meet you talk to yo about all of this and i have to
